Section II - Emergency and First Aid Primary Route of Entry: Symptoms of Overexposure: Inhalation Minimal respiratory tract irritation may occur as with Eyes: exposure to large amounts of any non-toxic dust. Flush with water. Skin: Medical Conditions Generally Aggravated by Exposure: Wash with soap and water. None when used as described by product literature. Inhalation: Remove from exposure. Additional Information: Ingestion: None. Dilute stomach contents with several glasses of milk or water. Section III - Toxicology and Health Information The toxicity data noted below is based on the test results of this toner or similar reprographic materials: >5 g/kg (rats) practically non-toxic. TLV: 10 mg/m3 (total dust) Oral LD50: Dermal LD50: >5 g/kg (rabbits) practically non-toxic. 5 mg/m3 (respirable dust) Inhalation LC50: >5 mg/l (rats, 4 hr exposure)practically non-toxic. PEL: 15 mg/m3 (total dust) 5 mg/m3 (respirable dust) >20 mg/l (calculated 1 hr exposure) non-poisonous, DOT. Eye Irritation: Not an irritant STEL: Not established Skin Sensitization: Not a sensitizer. Ceiling: Not established Skin Irritation: Not an irritant XEL1: 2.5 mg/m3 (total dust) Human Patch: Non-irritating, non-sensitizing 0.4 mg/m3 (respirable dust) Mutagenicity: No mutagenicity detected in Ames assay. Carcinogens: None present Aquatic LC50: >1000 mg/l (fathead minnows) non-toxic. Additional Information: The results obtained from a Xerox sponsored Chronic Toner Inhalation Study, demonstrated no lung change in rats for the lowest (1mg/m3) exposure level (i.e. the level most relevant to potential human exposure). A very slight degree of fibrosis was noted in 25% of the animals at the middle (4mg/m3) exposure level, while a slight degree of fibrosis was noted in all the animals at the highest (16 mg/m3) exposure level. These findings are attributed to "lung overloading", a generic response to excessive amounts of any dust retained in the lungs for a prolonged period. This study was conducted using a special test toner to comply with EPA testing protocol. The test toner was ten times more respirable than commercially available Xerox toner, and would not be functionally suitable for Xerox equipment.

Not applicable % (Vol.) Section V - Fire and Explosion Data Flash Point (Method Used): Flammable Limits: NFPA 704: Extinguishing Media: Special Fire Fighting Procedures: Fire and Explosion Hazards: Not applicable LEL: Not applicable, UEL: Not applicable Consumer Use & Storage “Cartridge” / “Bottle”-- Health - 0, Fire -1, Reactivity – 0 Manufacturing/Processor Use & Storage “Bulk” -- Health - 0, Fire -3, Reactivity - 0 Avoid direct stream -- gently apply water mist, water fog, or foam Avoid inhalation of smoke. Wear protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus. Toner is a combustible powder. Like most organic materials in powder form, it can form explosive mixtures when dispersed in air. 120°F - 140°F Not determined ~1 Not applicable Not applicable

Section VI -Reactivity Data Stability: Hazardous Polymerization: Hazardous Decomposition Products: Incompatibility (Materials to Avoid): Stable Will Not Occur Products of combustion may be toxic. Avoid breathing smoke. None known Section VII - Special Protection Information Respiratory Protection: Eye Protection: Protective Gloves: Other: None required when used as intended in Xerox equipment. None required when used as intended in Xerox equipment. None required when used as intended in Xerox equipment. For use other than normal customer - operating procedures (such as in bulk toner processing facilities), goggles and respirators may be required. For more information, contact Xerox. Section VIII - Special Precautions Handling and Storage: Conditions to Avoid: Keep container tightly closed. Avoid prolonged inhalation of excessive dust. Section IX- Spill, Leak, and Disposal Procedures For Spills or Leakage: Sweep up or vacuum spilled toner and carefully transfer into sealable waste container. Sweep slowly to minimize generation of dust during clean-up. If a vacuum is used, the motor must be rated as dust tight. A conductive hose bonded to the machine should be used to reduce static buildup (See Section V). Residue can be removed with soap and cold water. Garments may be washed or dry cleaned, after removal of loose toner. This material is not a hazardous waste according to Federal Regulation 40 CFR 261 when disposed. State and Local requirements may however, be more restrictive. Consult with the appropriate State and Local waste disposal authorities for additional information. Incinerate only in a closed container. Section X - Transportation Information This product is not regulated as a Hazardous Material during transportation.
